Aqua Building Chicago

In September 2013 during a Vision Explorers workshop in Chicago we photographed the Aqua Building. Since then I knew where I wanted to go with this image but procrastinated the execution. I finally got to it!
So…this image is the combination of : The Aqua Building + Composing a skyscraper straight up which makes it look like a dock.

Many times when photographing a a daytime long exposure image of a building the composition can get a bit abstract and the building actually looks a dock that leads you towards the water, so with this image I wanted to take the design of the Aqua Building which make the windows look like water puddles on a dock heading towards the water.

 

My take: turing architectural photography surreal
